PEOPLE / ACADEMIC STAFF
My research interest is in the neural bases of learning, memory and spatial cognition. To address this interest, I use the technique of single-neuron electrophysiological recording, in combination with creative behavioural tasks in the rodent. A particular focus is on head-direction and place cells, and their relationship to navigation and spatial memory.
My primary teaching responsibilities are at the University of Stirling. However, my laboratory is located within cCNS, and our current focus is on how routes and destinations are encoded, and how context-specific place cell firing arises within the hippocampus.
